Adding to the stellar Wairau Valley line-up of eateries, comes Vibe Coffee Roasters – something a little special.
Although a newly opened cafe, the team at Vibe Coffee Roasters have been in the coffee game for quite some time. They've spent years perfecting their very own coffee roast for retail, and now they're taking the next step in entering the hospitality world.
Their wildly popular (and award-winning) roasted beans are now available fresh, in coffee form, at their Wairau Valley coffee shop, located at 1/15 Porana Road.
The cafe is cosy and quaint, with the strong aroma of fresh coffee gracing everyone who steps through the door. The space is warmly lit and roomy enough to comfortably pass through, with their coffee menu printed large, hanging on the wall.
As expected, Vibe Coffee Roasters do all the classics, from a long black to flat whites, as well as an epic cold drip brew and mouthwatering iced coffee. But, aside from their classic cups, Vibe Coffee Roasters have stepped it up a notch with inventive lattes and captivating cabinet treats. If you're up for something a little different, their speciality lattes will catch your eye.
They've got all the classic speciality lattes such as turmeric, matcha and beetroot, but we're instantly drawn to the Hokey Pokey latte with real chunks of honeycomb toffee on top, using their Dark N Twisted coffee roast. And, if you're looking for more of a detox beverage, try out the charcoal latte for a picturesque black latte.
Although they have no food menu (as of yet), their treats on display are enough to accompany your perfectly brewed cup of coffee. We've seen Hokey Pokey croissants, chunky rocky road, and very sizeable sausage rolls. While coffee is the star of the show at Vibe Roasters, their food does seem to be a big contender.
Overall, Vibe Coffee Roasters new cafe is the next big thing in the Auckland coffee scene, with the perfect balance between aesthetic appeal and bloody good coffee. Make it your next coffee date host, or pop in for a takeaway cup with a bite to eat. You may even find yourself leaving with a bag of their signature roast to recreate your coffee at home.
Find Vibe Coffee Roasters at 1/15 Porana Road, Wairau Valley – open 7 days a week.
